Re: My new project

This car was owned by the owner of Somerset Toyota down in Kentucky :" big fancy lot" they tell me he had a nice 69SS for the street and a 32 ford too "gotta love rich guys" The car needs everything its been a drag car most of its life has no wiring harness except to the engine it needs glass,weather-stripping a bigger tank than 5 gallons,..the doors are hollow so...it needs doors.....it could use a real cooling system ..My plans are to "STREET ROD ify it"...nice interior BRUTAL RAT MOTOR...windows...aaah windows...

Im sure the car ran like Pro-Stock and Super Stock..I bet it has some storys to tell....I like the OL Skool cage-- looks kinda mean...
